Wangard Partners Inc. has plans to build up to 250 condo units at the corner of East Brady and North Water streets on Milwaukee’s East Side, the Wauwatosa-based developer announced on Monday.
The development, known as Brady & Water, is to be built in three phases at 1701 N. Water St. The first phase will include up to 70 units, with construction expected to begin in the summer.
The buildings will feature one-, two- and three-bedroom units and include townhouse models as well as river home models that will have access to both the street and the riverfront. It will also feature boat slips and space for boathouses to store kayaks, boats and other equipment.
Other features include publicly accessible river-facing green space and a riverfront boardwalk that connects to the Milwaukee riverwalk.
“We’re very excited about Brady & Water because it will provide a great living experience that connects the urban lifestyle of one of the city’s most popular neighborhoods with the natural environment of the Milwaukee River,” Stewart Wangard, CEO of Wangard, said in a news release.
Wangard has tapped Milwaukee architectural firm Rinka to design the project.
“Brady & Water is designed to engage residents and visitors on the property from its urban side and the river side, enhancing the street-level experience while providing better access to the river itself,” Matt Rinka, partner at Rinka, said in the release.
In particular, Rinka noted the Brady & Water boardwalk will be closer to water level than other parts of the city’s riverwalk.
Previously, Wangard planned to build apartments at the site, but the project was changed to condos earlier this year.
